We love to see new collaborative relationships blossom within the sneakersphere, especially when it's with a self-made online personality from the gaming industry. Welcome the Ninja x adidas Nite Jogger 'Time In', set to drop on December 31.
Richard Tyler Blevins, better known as Ninja, is a big star on the Internet – more specifically on Fortnite. Appreciated for his dedication to gaming and a stronger-than-steel work ethic, Ninja's 'Time In' sneaker celebrates the countless hours spent, in Ninja's words, 'to my craft paying off'.
By recognising Ninja as a collaborator, and giving him creative control over the Nite Jogger, adidas is acknowledging online gaming's influence on popular culture.
The shoe itself is different to recent adidas Nite Jogger offerings. The 'Time In' is made up of Ninja's signature colours, blue and yellow, along with Ninja's branding on the left medial panel. You can also find tan and white accents on the BOOST midsole, a gum rubber outsole, and graphic text reading 'Ninja' on the left shoe and 'Time In' on the right.
The Ninja x adidas Nite Jogger 'Time In' will drop via adidas on December 31. Cop to own a piece of sneaker history!
